Double win for Inter

Much as bitter, long-running rivalry fuels the Derby d'Italia, Richard Hall warns Inter must focus on themselves and not old enemies Juventus

Marco Materazzi often embodies the emotion and determination of Inter and this week was no different. Speaking to the Gazzetta Dello Sport, ‘Matrix’ was full of passion, but spoke with some insight that the Nerazzurri should not ignore. Inter should not focus on the Derby D’Italia fuelled with a need to avenge old rivalries, simply hoping to put pay to their Scudetto challenge, but instead should focus on the Champions League. This mentality is more similar to the way The Old Lady have looked at this fixture for years.

Di Francesco on Chelsea radar

Roma Coach Eusebio Di Francesco and Napoli’s Maurizio Sarri are among several tacticians linked with the Chelsea job in England.

According to the Daily Telegraph, patron Roman Abramovich is looking at several different profiles to replace Antonio Conte next term.

That list includes two Italians currently impressing in Serie A.

Sarri is not a new link to Stamford Bridge, as his style of football has been admired by Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

Chelsea interest in Sarri grows

Reports continue to spread that Maurizio Sarri will leave Napoli and the most likely destination is Chelsea, where he’d replace Antonio Conte.

The Coach is under contract until June 2020, but there is a release clause and President Aurelio De Laurentiis is concerned an overseas club could activate it.

Now the Daily Mail and the Corriere dello Sport both suggest Sarri is being courted by Chelsea patron Roman Abramovich.

Mancini favourite for Italy job

Roberto Mancini is the hot favourite to take over the Italy job and is expected to quit Zenit St Petersburg in May, claim reports.

The search continues for a permanent heir to Giampiero Ventura, who was sacked after failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

Gigi Di Biagio was given the role of interim CT for two friendlies against Argentina and England last month, but did not do enough to warrant the place full-time.

Conte ‘not worried’ by sack talk

Antonio Conte insists he is ‘not worried’ about his immediate future at Chelsea but admits they ‘deserve’ to be eight points adrift of the Champions League.

The pressure has intensified on Conte after Chelsea lost to Tottenham Hotspur on home soil for the first time in 28 years, leaving the Blues at grave risk of missing out on a top-four place in the Premier League. 

“I’m not worried,” said the Italian, reports The Guardian.

Vialli: 'Conte can't wait to leave'

Former teammate Gianluca Vialli said Antonio Conte “can’t wait to leave Chelsea, as he can’t stand that they don't consult him.”

The Coach seems increasingly likely to either be sacked or walk away at the end of the season, or even before that, as today’s 3-1 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur practically destroys hopes of a top four Premier League finish.

“Conte can’t wait to leave Chelsea,” Vialli told Sky Sport Italia in his role as a pundit.

Conte: 'I don't know if I'll stay'

Antonio Conte confessed he doesn’t know if he’ll be on the Chelsea bench next season, as Italy hope for a comeback.

The tactician left the Nazionale after Euro 2016 and won the Premier League in his first attempt, but this term has been disappointing.

Out of the Champions League and above all running the real risk of not qualifying for the next edition of the tournament, his position is in real doubt.
